Have you tried throwing rocks of her? Taliban Marriage Counseling
My limited experience in life has taught me that most people are basically good. The guy setting there with his wife has not stoned his wife apparently because he wants a solution that does not physically hurt either of them.
The marriage counselor (in my mind) represents politicians (control freaks, etc.) that will do anything to control people.
And every good politician knows that threatening people with their “eternal soul” will for the most part get those people to follow them.
The sad thing is, it works even here in the US.
